Random Thug Generator
Sun, 10 May 2020 21:31:06 +0000

Needed to create some thugs quickly for role playing with my kids, so I looked for a random thug generator. While there were tons of random character generators on the Internet, a generator specifically for thugs were hard to find. Eventually I found this science fiction one that's pretty good:

Updated Cyno's Dice to Improve Usability on Mobile Devices
Mon, 24 Sep 2018 22:12:15 +0000

Couldn't find my bag of dice this past weekend when I attempted to play some games with my kids. We had been very enthusiastic at creating RPG miniatures with our new 3D printer. So I went back to our trusty online dice set. While using Cyno's Dice with my children on our phones and tablets, I noticed that the interface could use some improvement.

So I updated the online dice to be more convenient for mobile and desktop users. The latest version is 1.5. And you can find the dice set here: Cyno's Dice.

Timeless SciFi Classics
Fri, 27 Apr 2012 20:12:39 +0000

It was funny to read science fiction of the future humanity when such a futuristic society is dated 1972. I read such a scifi story recently using Gutenberg eReader on my Android phone. And one of the first thing that came to my mind was that the story would have been just as relevant if it had been dated 2072 or even 2172.

It occurred to me that many books and stories in the Cyno's Role-Play series has explicit dates as well. For example, one of its supplement is titled, "Earth 2143 A.D.".

Although dates on the Cyno's Role-Play series are dated far in advance, pass our lifetimes, eventually they will fall as victims into the same trap. With today's technology improving at the current rate in all industries, it wouldn't be shocking if someone is to announce that any of us would live past 2143.

Therefore, after much thought, I have decided to eliminate all specific dates from the Cyno's Role-Play series. Instead, a vague notion of date will be used. For example, "Earth 2143 A.D." could be renamed to "Future Earth". And a passage like, "In 2143", could be replaced with "A long time from now".

This turn of event reduces the stress level of keeping the dates straight in gaming and in reading our stories for entertainment purposes. For ages to come, everyone will enjoy reading stories within the Cyno's Role-Play universe without the specific dates ruining the story element.

New "Collector's Item" Short Story
Sat, 14 Jan 2012 21:02:05 +0000

"Collector's Item", written by Evelyn E. Smith, is a fun, funny, and exciting short story that involves a group of stranded scientists on planet Zia and several alien telepathic zoologists. This lighthearted story has deception, betrayal, and conspiracy to make you wonder who will ultimately win to the very end.

"Collector's Item" has so many elements that are similar to the scifi world created for Cyno's Role-Play that we tied it to the Arkedine Solar System from the Space Worlds supplement. Planet Zia is an excellent backdrop for one of the old Ferriton home worlds. Thus, the short story serves as a prequel to the Slavery of Earth scenario.
